Peruvian purchases

Peru also took the RN cruiser Newfoundland plus the destroyers Decoy and Diana. They also took a couple of Dutch cruisers and six destroyers, plus a couple of USN destroyers. They bought new Italian Lupo class frigates and French missile boats.

I remember seeing Newfoundland in Southampton Docks after she had finished with the RN at Portsmouth Dockyard, and prior to departure for Peru.
